Dead Pixels

Mrs.Ifty bought me a nice new 20 inch LCD Screen for my birthday. We noticed it had a dead pixel almost right in the centre of the display. Not something that one could ignore easily really.

We considered taking it back to the shop until I read this click here It worked!

Well chuffed.. I thought I'd share it with you!

Cheers Kev.

i still have mine, smack in the center of my 24" hitachi widescreen, i tried the pressure thing, flashing programs but nothing worked. i contacted the supplier who explained their policy was up to 4 on a 24" screen. but the maker's policy was 9!! so i decided to live with it. i would hate to send it back and receive another with 4. i think samsung have a no dead pixel policy, i may be wrong though.
mine's red so i only see it on start up and shut down.

Sorry to hear your stories about bad pixels which you cannot resolve.

I guess I was lucky. Are we going to start a campaign?
